Past Performance

I realise that I graduated university over 10 years ago now. Earlier today I wanted to check the exact date so I looked out a copy of my certificate. Sure enough, the 10 year anniversary was at some point last month. What was also stored with the certificate was my ...

Re-examining Exams

I was listening to a discussion about a study titled “Bullshitters. Who Are They and What Do We Know about Their Lives?”. Most of the other coverage of the study has been around which groups of people were shown to be either more or less truthful while merely describing the ...

Working at Hight (of a different kind)

Well I have met most of the people I will be working with over the summer and so far they all seem a nice bunch. One of the biologists talks a lot like Miss Engel which I found a bit weird but am sure I will get used to it ...

Leg it to the ...

Transforming Back into a Student

Yay finished work. No need to go back to Pollock till well, next week when I hand in my time sheet. I think I might make away with three accommodation services polo shirts, no one has asked for them back anyway. Apart from that the day went rather smoothly and ...
